VeriWave announces a real-world Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) over WLAN test solution. The VeriWave VoIP over WLAN Analysis Test Suite assesses voice quality metrics of real-world VoIP over WLAN networks. It analyzes traffic prioritization, evaluates the network behavior in the presence of non-voice traffic and measures overall call quality when users roam between Wireless LAN Access Points. The suite provides open-air testing of mixed voice/data networks. It supports a variety of real handsets to generate voice traffic—scaling the network capacity from a single handset to the maximum number of handsets the network can support before voice quality degrades to below user-acceptable levels. VeriWave’s test suite also evaluates mixed use networks, by introducing controlled data traffic to the networks, generated by VeriWave’s WaveTest Traffic Generator/Performance Analyzer. In addition to creating the base-line quality measurements of a VoIP over WLAN only network, the test suite adds background data traffic to evaluate how the wireless network handles voice call prioritization in the presence of controlled data traffic and assesses individual call quality when handsets roam between Wireless Access Points.
